The longest special stage of the Dakar takes place on the sixth consecutive day of racing. And that is not the only difficulty of this stage, which will take place between 3,500 and 4,200 meters in elevation. The pace and terrain changes constantly, alternating between sand and rock, which may be disconcerting, especially if it rains. Glimpses of the Salar de Uyuni are one of the visual delights on this special. The truck category will race on their own course today, which will visit the home town of Bolivilan president Evo Morales.

The special for the motos and cars is 542 km and starts right out of the bivouac. It is a loop, with a 181 km liaison at the end of the stage. Trucks have a 295 km special and a 305 km liaison.

That Toyota really seemed to rocket off the line compared to the Pugs and the Mini. Could be the engine note making it "sound" faster.

I sure wish I could understand what they were saying. They had a lot of "Robby Gordon" in their announcing.
